thechronic99 Emerges Triumphant in the 888 KO Games Overlay Edition $162 Mystery Bounty

After a brief final table of eight that lasted just over an hour, Denmark's "thechronic99" was the last player standing in Event #19: $162 Mystery Bounty at the 888poker KO Games Overlay Edition, defeating "ingeruRO14" in heads-up play to secure the victory and a total payday of $20,091.

Coming into the third and final day, Canadian "UGOTPOONCHED" led the field but ultimately fell in fourth place, whereas "thechronic99" started third in chips and managed to navigate their way to the top. "Zindane", flying the flag for Cyprus, finished on the podium in third place, good for $8,886, including bounties, while the aforementioned "ingeruRO14" of Romania took second and $13,262.

Mystery Bounty Element

Half of the $200,000 prize pool generated by the 1,328 entries was devoted to mystery bounties, with that element of the tournament coming into play on Day 2. The top $20,000 bounty, which exceeded the regular prize pool first-place payout, ended up in the hands of "zxcdsaqwe" early in the day to dampen some of the excitement. Nevertheless, there was still big money up for grabs in bounties, as demonstrated by seventh-place finisher "Inspiro", who collected the majority of their total $8,999 payout in bounties.

Money Bubble

Not long after some of the biggest bounties were taken off the board, the money bubble was burst by the unfortunate "YguTj" as they were essentially blinded out in 145th place to secure the remaining players $250. Play then continued at a rapid pace until just eight players remained.

Final Table Action

"Suic1deKin9" had the shortest stack coming into the final table so it was no surprise that they were the first to go in a wild three-way all in encounter. Next out was "Inspiro" after "UGOTPOONCHED" rivered a king to bring the tournament down to six players.

Not long after, "guitiradent1" was felted by a flopped cooler before "latvianhero1" followed them out the door in 5th place after "Zindane" flopped a set against them.

Start of the day chip leader "UGOTPOONCHED" had by this point become the short stack, with their tournament ultimately coming to an end in 4th place. A dominated ace was all that was needed to condemn "Zindane" to a 3rd place finish to set up a heads-up match between "ingeruRO14" and "thechronic99", the latter of whom entered that stage of the tournament with a significant chip advantage.

Only a few hands later, all the chips got in the middle, with "ingeruRO14" needing to pair up their king-jack to survive. Unable to do so, "thechronic99" was the last player left standing to take down Event #19: $162 Mystery Bounty and leave "ingeruRO14" with a $13,262 consolation prize.
